This special recipe was given to me by a good friend. It was one of her mothers treasured recipes. Bread is one of my comfort foods. Just the aroma of fresh baked
bread alone is almost worth the effort….. Just smelling the wonderful
aroma that ﬁlls my home when baking bread or rolls, gives me a
sense of comfort and joy.
This special recipe is a combination of a dinner roll and a Honey Walnut Glaze……
it is just the right amount of sweetness to compliment any meal or gathering.
